Accolade `Panache Selection` Merlot 2012 (12 x 750mL), SA.

Description:

Outstanding fruit quality dictated the style of wine that was to be made. Fermentation was conducted in temperature-controlled vessels using selected yeast strains to highlight the varietal character of the Merlot grapes. Upon completion of fermentation, separate parcels of wine were run off to a mixture of American and French oak for maturation. Keeping the oak characters well in the background, with the vinous flavours being dominant was the main challenge. Small batches of wine underwent micro-oxidation to further stabilise colour and improve the suppleness of the tannins.

From the very start, Salena Estate’s objective was always to become recognised as a maker of world-class wines that represent great value in any market that they are presented. Salena Estate firmly believe in the old winemaker’s maxim that ‘the making of good wine starts in the vineyard’. To achieve consistently high quality fruit, the latest pruning, canopy management and other vineyard practises are undertaken to ensure the best possible varietal expression in the harvest. Vineyard plantings are of fairly significant size, at 208 hectares (520 acres). Varieties grown include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Merlot, Chardonnay, Colombard, Semillon and Riesling.Salena Estate is also certified as an organic processor, enabling to satisfy demand in an exciting new segment of the wine market.“Salena Estate – A family ownded company making premium wines that redefine the standards for quality and value”
